The 17th wedding of the year was one of the best I’ve ever seen. This couple. This crowd. All of it – top notch.

I was connected with Kyle and Christine just about a year before the big day – we had a consultation meeting with a few drinks and before I knew it – September 16th, 2017 was just around the corner. They were super easy to work with but not just that – they were super fun to work with also. They even made it out to 6B Lounge for a live preview one Friday for some throwbacks – and some of those throwbacks even made it into the set at the wedding.

The ceremony itself was held off site so I was all set up at the venue as everyone arrived for the start of cocktail hour and so on. The venue which I’ve never played before was great – out in West Dennis Cape Cod and on the water – I had a small cocktail hour setup on the patio area while people enjoyed drinks and catching up – the music for this part of the night K&C wanted was very Rat Pack esque with Post Modern Juke Box covers thrown in for good measure.

As the crowd then made their way inside and were seated – everyone was lined up for introductions. First up the kids were announced to ‘Jump in the Line’ by the legendary Harry Belefonte, the wedding party was introduced to ‘Jock Jams Remix’ which got the crowd going then up next was Mr. and Mrs. Kyle Kessel announced to Huey Lewis ‘Power of Love’. They went directly into their first dance ‘Head Over Boots’. Such a great start so far to an upcoming epic dance party.

We started dinner off with a few toasts/speeches. The dinner music was a similar vibe to cocktail – also missing in some chill folky stuff from the Lumineers and a little classic rock as well. The food was incredible as I threw on an auto playlist for a few minutes at this time and have a vendor meal with the photographers as well. With dinner coming to a close we transitioned into parent dances. Kyle and his mother dancing to ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’ by the Byrds and Christine and her father to ‘The Way You Look Tonight’. Up next – lights dimmed down, flipped on the dance party lighting rig, and madness in the best way possible broke out. They had a crowd of 200 or so people and all 200 of them were on their feet. Kicked off with the classic funk/soul tunes from Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield and moved into Bruno/JT/Katy Perry top 40 and tons of 80s and 90s gems on their must playlist. Hands down one of the most fun groups of people I’ve ever played for and it all stems from the couple being amazing. The night closed out with a song K&C had chosen – Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Glory Days’ with everyone singing along to it.

CONGRATS and thank-you Kyle and Christine for letting me rock the house T-Rex style!!! You guys rock and so did this wedding. Cheers!
